Audio Description



Foaled on August 9th this colt presents as a great pin-hooking opportunity. He is a well put together foal with an attractive head and a good action.

Spill The Beans has 144 first crop 2YOs to race for him this season and he has already sired 1 winner and 3 place-getters from his first 5 runners to-date. He is currently #3 on Australia’s First Season Sires’ List, behind only Vancouver and Pride of Dubai.

By the excellent broodmare sire Show A Heart, whose daughters have produced over 68% winners to runners including Group 1 winner Miss Cover Girl, Our Momento is from a real Queensland speed family. She is closely related to Dubious (Not A Single Doubt), winner of the Gr.2 Champagne Classic and 2nd in the $2.5m Magic Millions 2YO Classic last season for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace. This is also the family of stallions Neo Universe, Street Cry, Shamardal and Territories.

Our Momento’s half-sister Shamtilly Lace is the dam of That’s Tilly (2016 f. Testa Rossa). A $55,000 Magic Millions March Yearling Sale graduate, she was city-placed at 2 from just three starts to-date for Carolyn Sargeant.

Spill The Beans’ sire Snitzel has had 5 runners from Show A Heart mares for 4 winners, plus Diddles who was 2nd in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes on debut last season at 2.

Our Momento has not been bred this season due to an injury received during foaling. Vet report available.

Please note that Our Momento and her Spill The Beans colt are available for inspection at Valiant Stud by prior appointment
